Sibling Similarities are Cleverly Featured in Photographer’s ‘Base Pairs’ Portrait Series

Andrew Ryan, a Gyeonggii-do, South Korea-based Canadian photographer, grew up as an only child, which he says made him a “natural” to study the likenesses of those who were raised with siblings.

According to Peta Pixel, in Ryan’s series “Base Pairs, he “shot portraits of a number of siblings using black-and-white film. He then developed the film, scanned the negatives into his computer, and spliced them together digitally to create each final composite image.”

It’s an analog approach that highlights no matter how different we think we might be on the inside, siblings can still be strikingly similar on the outside.
